Holding Engineers And Architects Liable For Design Errors
Design errors and miscalculations made by the architect or engineer when building skyscrapers and designing roadways, can be costly and sometimes deadly. In addition to considerable business losses of the real estate developer and investors, injuries and fatal accidents sometimes occur as a result of such negligent design, creating engineering liability.

What Does Architect And Engineering Liability Look Like?
Engineer and architect liability refers to the legal responsibility for injuries or other damages caused by negligence in design. Accusations of architect and engineering liability arise in a variety of circumstances. These cases are often complex and may involve multiple defendants and millions of dollars in claimed damages — it can be very difficult to determine who is at fault for problems that arise.
Attorneys at our firm have obtained successful results for clients damaged by all varieties of engineer and architect negligence, including:
- Building project design negligence that has caused structural collapse
- Roadway design, including placement of traffic lights and traffic signals, bridges, piers and road abutments and failure to account for road hazards
- Negligent road construction
- Preparation of blueprint and specifications for all types of developments
For example, we recently recovered a large settlement in a case where a developer brought suit against an engineer. The court determined that the engineer defectively designed certain specifications, finding engineer liability.
